Superb September Events in West Devon, Plymouth and Tavistock

Here’s our round-up of events and one-off things to see and do in West Devon, Plymouth and Tavistock for September.   Weather outlook when this was posted is for an unsettled start and drier towards the middle/end of the month see -  Looks good for campers & tourers and the children are back to school so our park will be a little quieter with plenty of space.  Our picture is from September 2014.
